Reagan is learning to read. She loves it and I am really glad. I have not been pushing at all and she seems to do well with the Bob books. What I have done to help her is to take an index card, cut it in half and put the words on each half. It is easier just to take a look below at the picture:

So, for example I put all of the words from book #1 on the index cards and we review them until she feels comfortable with all of them. When she is ready, we read the book. Today we read book one, look.
